We’re BACK! Join us for an all-day conference on June 13 at The Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center as we host thought-provoking speakers, relevant and current content, networking opportunities, and an exclusive look into our thriving community.

Beginning at 8 AM, attendees will have the opportunity to socialize with other professionals in the region and enjoy speakers such as Delegate Sam Rasoul, Archie Messersmith-Bunting, the Virginia Tourism Corporation, Roanoke Regional SBDC, community influencers, and much more. After lunch, attendees can attend a break-out session to deepen their learning and enjoy a one-of-a-kind, exclusive outdoor market where they can network and shop some of our tenacious small businesses that weathered the pandemic with creativity and grit.
